Cetec estimates growth for 2015.

Cetec has announced its estimate of a 20 percent sales growth for 2015. "The rather optimistic estimate, especially in such turbulent economic scenario, is supported by a strategy that combines portfolio expansion and the development of custom automation systems," the company said in a statement.

So far, the business activities of Cetec were almost entirely divided between the company's two most traditional lines: electrostatic painting equipment and the exclusive distribution in Brazil of airless painting machines manufactured by the US company Titan, a global benchmark in its segment.

"This year, we will increase our activities with the launch of several items for liquid painting, such as tanks, guns and agitators," said Eduardo Cernic, director of Cetec. In this area, according to him, Cetec has recently started working as a distributor of the French company Kremlin Rexson & Sames, one of the world's largest manufacturers of pumps and guns (airless and HVLP). "We expect that liquid painting accounts for 10% of our revenues already in 2015," Cernic said.

In parallel, Cetec intends to expand its development area of automated painting systems, in the wake of the growing change in the working parameters of most industries, which have been increasingly seeking to rely on smart factories a concept that is also known as "Industry 4.0". "These are solutions tailored to the companies' needs to keep raising the level of automation of their processes as much as possible. Yamaha, Caio, Deka, Electrolux, Monark and Tramontina, among others, are already operating with the systems developed by Cetec.
